    Hi I am a pet owner but I just wanted to let you know that I
    have seen congo x timneh hybreds.As pets and allso one in a
    rescue. They can mate so I would think it would be a personal
    decision. Do you agree that hybrids are fine or do you believe
    in protecting the species?
    Just my two cents.- Jana
